In this action-adventure-fantasy, 12-year-old Pete (Irish) Kehoe thinks he is an ordinary kid;until trees start talking to him and an old woman tells him he is chosen to defend the mystical Otherworld against the King of Demons.
No way! He says, until a demon kidnaps his kid sister, Kathy. Then Irish and his two friends, Streak and Huff, time-hop to this besieged world of Celtic mythology to rescue her.
But . . . are they ready to deal with a shape-shifter, a death fog, demon warriors, killer earthquakes and vicious flesh-eating wulgoars to save her? (Taken from Goodreads)
The one thing that really sold this book for me was the vast amount of Irish mythology present throughout the novel. I found it to be well researched and used in such a context that it made sense within the novel. The novel was also full of mythical creatures which because of the research put in by the author were highly believable within the context of the novel.
This book is fairly short and I easily read it in a couple of hours. I found it to be a fast-paced read, which left me wanting more however I found it to be a bit slow towards the end but it soon picked up again.
Overall it was a really good read, which I would recommend to all ages.
